Joshua Ledet, currently a Top 3 contestant in FOX’s American Idol, is scheduled to come to Louisiana this Saturday, May 12 for a Homecoming Pep Rally.

Due to inclement weather, the parade originally scheduled for 2:30 p.m. will be moved up to Noon, per American Idol’s request. The parade will begin at the Westlake Multipurpose Center, 1221 Sampson St., and continue north down Sampson Street and end at the Westlake High School.

The community is invited to see the parade and cheer Ledet on as he rides through his hometown.  Parade viewers are strongly encouraged to bring posters and signage to wish Joshua good luck and let him know how proud his hometown is of his accomplishments.

This is a family friendly alcohol-free event.  For more information and updates, please refer to:
